    Bill and Hillary Clinton: “Friends of Haiti?”

    by Marty Goodman

    The Clintons’ crimes against Haiti go back two decades, making Bill singularly unsuitable to act as United Nations envoy to Haiti. “Bill’s friendly relations with Haiti’s current President Michael Martelly, who is linked to Duvalier-era thugs and their kin, is well known.”

    Backed by the might of the United States military and their own official positions, the Clinton power couple plus brother-in-law have muscled themselves into the Haitian telephone monopoly. This cozy public-private partnership poses huge conflicts of interest, says Paul Pumphrey, of Brothers and Sisters International – and robs the Haitian people of hundreds of millions in revenues a year.   But then, that's what empires are for, isn't it?

    Hillary Clinton: A Very Ugly American

    A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford


    Having forced Pakistan to launch a civil war to protect American interests, the U.S. dispatches Hillary Clinton to rub salt in Pakistani wounds. The Anti-Diplomat lectures the locals on tax collection and helping the poor while her government daily violates the country's sovereignty. “Americans believe they are the only nation that deserves to have a sense of dignity – and so they relentlessly strip away the dignity of others.”

    The Handwriting is On the Wall: It's a Clinton-Obama Ticket in ‘08

    by BAR managing editor Bruce Dixon 055montage

    A year before the November 2008 presidential election, Democratic front runners Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are runaway winners in the contest that really matters, the wealth primary, the competition for campaign donations from our nation's moneyed elite. From military contractors and Wall Street to agribusiness and insurance, Clinton and Obama are raking in far more cash than any Republican, and receiving the lion's share of coverage in corporate media. An historic shift is underway as corporate America lines up behind the Democratic wing of its permanent ruling party. For voters forced to choose between Republicans who won't apologize for the war, and Democrats pledged to continue it, next year's choices may be anticlimactic.

    The Barack and Hillary Show Plays Selma

    by BAR Executive Editor Glen Ford

    The double-church drive-by in Selma, Alabama showed the utter vapidity and lack of substance of the Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton campaigns. As the corporate media checked their applause meters and "Amen" counters, both corporatist candidates plied the Black congregations with false-folksy nonsense and self-congratulatory exultations - avoiding at all cost any hint of challenge to American ruling structures.  If the Bloody Sunday commemoration is any indication, the Black Freedom Movement ends with, not a whimper, but hollow bombast and impotence.

    Rep. Maxine Waters: Clinton and Obama Will Have to 'Prove Themselves' on Iraq

    Maxine_at_mic-150pxby BAR Executive Editor Glen Ford

    Rep. Maxine Waters and other progressive lawmakers are tired of watching Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama dance around the issue of Iraq withdrawal. As the January 27 ‘Peace March on Washington' approaches, leaders of the Out of Iraq Congressional Caucus plan to turn up the heat on the Democratic presidential frontrunners.
